    These stark, sweet confessionals easily rank among the best of his career. [Nov 2004, p.108]
  2. The result is somewhere between a Badly Drawn Boy and a strung-out Paul McCartney. [Dec 2004, p.135]

    All in all, an admirable comeback. [Nov 2004, p.108]
  4. Tales Told lacks the charm of the Seeds' most ebullient singles, and it's certainly no Crocodiles, either.
  5. This album's appeal or otherwise lies in how much you'd want to wallow in tales of time passing and friends now gone.
